Pointless petition, it's not like Rockstar isn't going to release it for PCs anyways.

Wouldn't be so sure about that. A while ago Rockstar posted this job listing on their site before taking it down: "Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform. Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible."

Now of course this doesn't mean they are talking about GTA V, but it's possible, isn't it?

vishmarx1767d ago

they did that with mp3 and sales failed
also IF they announce a nex gen version ever
that prolly is the only time you can expect a pc port
not like r* would need it then
besides less than 2 months left
and when we know ps360 version will sell like water anyways
r* neednt worry about the sales and work on something else ,id rather
infct theyre better of clarifying theyve got no nex gen version

abzdine1767d ago

no reason to panic, it will come to PC sooner or later just like GTA4.

MestreRothN4G1767d ago

Red Dead Redemption is possible as well.




Nafon1767d ago

maybe they took the listing down because they found someone for the job?

All those PC gamers shit on consoles on this site. And now 200,000 of them are crying for GTA5.

steve30x1767d ago

Not all PC gamers shit on consoles. I have a high end gaming PC , PS3 and Xbox360.

You are just jelly pc gamer get the better version of all the games you play and like.

Shadowsteal1766d ago


Crysis 3 with better graphics on PC doesnt make it "next-gen" compared to Consoles. If PC is truly capable of next gen for over 3 years now then why didn't they make games like the Division, Destiny, and MGS5 then? Why continue making linear games? Oh that's right because the majority have "average" PC's and consoles so they inhibit the next-gen traits of games so everyone can play.

even if they weren't going to release it on PC (which they obviously will), what is a petition going to do about it?

Lol I swear people. Petitions have their reasons. A game not being on a platform you want, is not one of them.

cyril sneer1767d ago

Well petition's got dark soul's on pc and now it's lead platform for dark soul's 2.

Kalebninja1767d ago

they got us pandoras tower.xenoblade.last story why not gta v

Funnymonkey0131767d ago

Guys we know it will come to PC just like GTA4 but if it somehow doesn't well I think we all know y.

hennessey861766d ago

I just hope it's a better port this time, GTA 4 was a crappy port.

FlyingFoxy1767d ago

It will come if Rockstar has any sense, if it has 64+ player online, with player created game modes like SA-MP, this game will sell bucket loads and be much better than the console versions.

ATi_Elite1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Grand Theft Auto started on the PC and has ALWAYS had a PC release.

I keep telling you MORONS that R* is somehow under contract to NOT talk about a PC version until after the console release.

just go play GTAIV PC and notice the large community still playing it because of the MODS.

Do you think Sony/MS who will help foot the bill in advertising GTAV want R* talking about a PC version?

Do you think Microsoft who will have Timed Exclusive DLC want R* talking about a PC version?


PC version will arrive a year later at the most with all DLC included, extra features, and of course those wonderful MOds.

anyway I'll be too busy playing StarCitizen or Elite Dangerous or X-rebirth to worry about not having GTAV.

also when PC Gamers speak things happen so this petition may force R* to address the situation some kind of way to ease PC Gamers minds but 200k means not very many PC Gamers are worried. (we got too much to play as is)

skept3k1767d ago

There is no way in hell they wont eventually bring the game to PC. It's not that hard to port to PC, and they would lose a lot of sales.

I think what they like to do is get as many people to buy console release, then around 6-9 months release on PC with some small updates to get some to buy it a second time.

It worked on me with GTA 4, I bought it twice.

GTA will come to PC at some time, and this petition will have zero effect on when that is.

cunnilumpkin1767d ago

gtav on pc will come for sure, and it will be THE next gen version to own!

its not like ps4 or xbox1 can do even close to what a 3 year old gaming pc can, so even if the ps4 or xbox1 get a port of the pc version, its not like it would be close to as good as the pc version

Furesis1767d ago

what are you on about? lol so random

Still waiting on Red Dead Redemption huh?

It's cute though, keep making useless petitions.

FlyingFoxy1767d ago

2 words, Rockstar north.

This game will come to PC, and the multiplayer (if R* know what they're doing) will be much much better than the console versions, hopefully on the scale of SA-MP at least.

starchild1767d ago

Still waiting on Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Alan Wake, Mass Effect 1, and The Witcher 2 for your PS3 huh? Oh you sad, pathetic little gokiburi.

George Sears1767d ago

Mass Effect 1 is on PS3 though

starchild1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Oh, you're right, Mass Effect 1 finally did come to the PS3. It took so long that I kind of forgot about that.

My point is that ALL platforms miss out on games, and ALL platforms sometimes have to wait a little longer to get certain games.

I have no doubt that GTA5 will come to the PC just like all the past games.

@HircusCapra below..

You can't compare TFLOPs across different architectures. My HD 7950 has similar FLOPs to a GTX 680, but the 680 wipes the floor with my 7950. Don't try to compare FLOPs numbers that way. It isn't accurate.

Within the GCN family of AMD GPUs you can reasonably compare FLOPs, but remember that FLOPs are not the only measure of a GPU's performance capability.

arjman1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Why does it matter to any of you which platform it releases on? Is it really that much of a win for you if a PC gamer can't play GTAV or if a PS3 gamer can't play Left 4 Dead?

cyril sneer1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

How are they useless as i already said above a petition got dark souls on pc so they do work.

teraflops1767d ago

Okay then, let’s have a look at the new consoles and 2-3 year old hardware.

Xbox one = 1230 GFLOPS + 5GB DDR3 (allocated for games)
PS4 = 1840 GFLOPS + 7GB GDDR5 (allocated for games)

GTX 480 = 1345 GFLOPS + 1.5GB GDDR5

GTX 580 = 1581 GFLOPS + 1.5GB GDDR5

The Xbox One sits slightly behind older top of the line hardware, but has much more ram. While the PS4 is way ahead these 2-3 year old high end cards, I believe these next gen console wouldn't have any problem running GTA5 at 1080p/60fps. Even John Carmack said that GEN4 could run GEN3 games (which are in 720p/30fps) in 1080p/60fps without problem.

You're probably a typical PC elitist roaming on N4G spouting your inflated opinion and trying to convince everyone that GEN4 consoles are utterly weak, awful, redundant and everyone should be building a "beastly" PC...classic!

wtopez1767d ago

You are comparing the total ram of the consoles to the ram of the PC video cards only. Not exactly a fair comparison.

Autodidactdystopia1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

OMG dude you forgot to include the processor in those "flop" calculations.

you seem to have only counted videocards themselves vs a whole system....

also for shts and giggles, lets check how many "flops" my 680 has.


not because those flops mean anything at all but because its interesting to see knowing that the 680 is only about 30% faster in real world performance than the 580 despite its double "floppy" flop flip count.

also you forgot to mention that ati cards always have a higher estimate flop count than comparative NVidia chips even though they are known industry wide to be slower...

my 6970 had 2.7 tflops of compute performance,

but ill tell you one thing is is literally half as fast as a 580 and about 40% as fast as my 680.

So many people criticizing the petition. This is how PC gamers are letting their voices be heard. Why criticize the effort amassed by several hundred thousand people as unnecessary or pointless? Since when did it become pointless to make our voices be heard? This is just gamers trying to secure a game they love on their platform of choice. It will never be pointless to make your opinion known. Especially when several thousands of people share your opinion.

steve30x1767d ago

You didnt see the petition to get a better ending to mass effect get criticised this much. You know that if there is any mention of PC on here the Console only people make out that all PC gamers are the same so hate on PC gaming.

starchild1767d ago

What's funny is that the real reason most of them hate on the PC is because they are fanboys of one console and they want to hate on the other consoles nonstop and the PC gives a different context and kind of reminds them that there is something that makes all the petty graphics and features squabbling between consoles look pretty silly.

In other words they hate the PC because it gets in the way of them hating on other consoles. Pretty ironic if you ask me.

Seafort1767d ago

They can't really hate on PC gaming anymore though as that's what the new consoles are. They might as well bitch to themselves in a mirror.

With the x86 architecture, AMD graphics card and cpu it's the closest thing to a dektop PC the consoles have ever been hehe.

It's like buying a store bought PC (console) compared to someone who built his own PC (gaming PC).

aliengmr1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

The issue I have is that we should even "have to" let our voices be heard.

I am not for begging Rockstar to do something that they should do without having to be begged. If they don't want to release it, fine, but they ought to have the stones to say that up front.

So its the principal of the matter. They are either completely out of touch with a portion of their fanbase or just being douchebags. We shouldn't have to petition them, they should have the respect to tell us one way or the other.
